When I was much younger, I operated a Lime Kiln,
took 5 day's from pulling burner to allow access into the kiln.

With sour gas furnaces, it was a 3 day cool down for access.

Most interesting refractory failure was during the initial dry out period,
the furnace lining failed and caused over heating of the furnace shell.
Needed 1/2 of the vessel to be replaced.

Interesting time's, all behind me now.
